Homebuyer Survey Level 3
The extensive Level 3 survey report offers a fuller analysis of the property, providing more exact technical information and commentary related to the building’s construction, condition, defects and need for repairs. It is an invaluable due diligence tool for home buyers to make an informed decision about purchasing a property.
You should choose the RICS level 3 survey (formerly the residential building survey) if you want a report that is more detailed than a RICS Home Survey Report, or if you’re dealing with a property that is:
• In poor condition
• Non-traditional construction
• Significantly altered and therefore not suitable for the RICS reports
You’ll also want to choose this option if you’re planning major works on a property.
It’s the most expensive type of survey but it provides you with greater detail about the structure and fabric of the property.

The RICS Level 3 survey includes:
- A thorough inspection of the property by a RICS qualified surveyor including a description of the construction and condition of the property on the date of the inspection. This can include a more extensive roof space and underground drainage inspection if required.
- A detailed report on a wide range of issues including any problems that need urgent attention, are serious, hazardous or affect the valuation. It aims to identify things that need to be investigated further to prevent serious damage.
- A market valuation (if requested) and information to help you decide whether you need extra advice before committing to purchase.
- An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity. It aims to help you prepare a budget for any repairs or restoration
- Advice for your legal advisers
- Details of serious risks and dangerous conditions
Following completion of the Report, we will happily provide guidance and advice right up to exchange of contracts, and thereafter should the need arise.
